31st Annual Utah Greek Festival underway in Salt Lake City

Wouldn’t a vacation to Greece be nice right about now? Well, this weekend only, you can escape to see a taste of Greece right in your backyard.

The 31st Annual Greek Festival kicked off Friday where as many as five generations will be running booths.

“When Greek meets Greek they say, the men especially, ‘Xadelfi’ which means cousin…Everybody’s a cousin!” says Church Historian, John Chipian.

There’s only one rule at the Greek Festival…if you like what you see, you have to yell out “Opa!”

The festival runs Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.. The tents are set up right on the corner of 300 South and 300 West at the Holy Trinity Church.
